's a big question. they clearly can't have an opening in the treasury secretary's post right now. so it would leave the white house and the administration in a lurch if he were to, you know, really plan an exit without a clear succession plan. but treasury secretary geithner is clearly exhausted. >> but that is exactly why it stee seems to me so odd. it sounds like what people are expecting out of this white house when it comes to economics these days, so maybe it's just par for the course. jeff, does it strike you as just kind of bad politics, bad timing? what's your take on this? >> i don't think anyone in the world cares much who's the treasury secretary. people care that the economy is not recovering, and he is the leading representative of it other than the president himself. things were getting better in may. they stopped getting better. this is a problem in substance, and it's a problem politically. shuffling around the boxes doesn't matter, but the lack of a sense that anything is getting better or there's a plan to get things better is a big, big problem. >> jeff, there's ab
doesn't matter. a lost season is a big deal. >>> tight lipped about any emergency surgery and now an admission from venezuelan president hugo chavez. in a televised appearance yesterday, chavez says that doctors in cuba operated on him to remove a cancerous tumor in june. there's no word yet on when he will return to venezuela but speculation surrounded his health after he canceled a high-profile summit of latin american leaders slated for this month. >>> in japan the government is recommending more evacuations from the area around the fukushima daiichi nuclear power plant. officials say 113 additional households should evacuate from four districts now considered radiation hot spots. that's far beyond the mandatory exclusion zone set up for 20 kilometers around the fukushima reactors. >>> on the run since 2005, and on the 15 most wanted fugitive list since june, alleged drug kingpin keith hasson arrested in los angeles yesterday. he's suspected of masterminding a nationwide cocaine and marijuana ring which raked in more than $20 million. he's also wanted on an open indictment in n
found this really interesting. many people say that suggests these online pharmacist could be a big factor in the prescription drug problem overall. for one second i want to show you some numbers as to how big a number we're talking about here. according to the national institute on drug abuse about 7 million people using prescription drugs for non-medical reason. in 2009 ant 3% of the population. nearly one in 12 high school seniors report non-medical use of vicodin. one in 20 say they used oxycontin. what's interesting, drew, is that 59% of those high school seniors also say they got the drugs from a friend or a relative. which brings up another question. as you've been pointing out in your reports, it's so easy to buy these drugs online. but if the pharmacies start to shut down, can people get term from their family or friends pretty easily? >> they certainly will. but i think it's the proliferation of the ease of getting these drugs. and even people who want these drugs, let's say a doctor predescribes them. but the prescription runs out. they're addicted. they want to keep it g
played out today? >> in a word, no. this is one of the most extraordinary days in the history of big time criminal justice in the united states. the head spinning pace of events and the rapid turn around in the fortunes of the sides in this case. is like nothing i've ever seen before. and it looks like this case is going to end with a dismissal of the case at this point. it's hard to imagine how there could be a trial at this point when the prosecution has essentially described its main witness as a something close to a compulsive liar. >> i want to hear now from the alleged victim's lawyer, jeffrey. claiming prosecutors have turned on his client. let's listen to this then i want to ask you about it. >> now, it is a fact that the victim here made some mistakes. but that doesn't mean she's not a rape victim. and so all of this stuff that they leaked to the "new york times" was designed to discredit this woman. and i spoke to her a little while ago. and through her tear, through her hurt, she asked me, why did they do this to ni me? and i said, i don't know why. and now, she is determined.

-khan's lawyers. and the big thing here, he said regardless of any credibility issues, as richard was just outlining there, his client was raped, pure and simple. and this is graphic stuff. i want to play some sound, richard roth, let's listen together. >> the only defense that dominique strauss-khan is that this sexual encounter was consensual, that is a lie. he grabbed her vagina with so much force that he bruised her vagina. when she went to the hospital later that day, the nurses who examined her saw the bruises on her vagina that were caused by dominique strauss' hand, and they took pictures of the bruises on her vagina, and the district attorney has those pictures. when dominique strauss-khan threw the victim to the floor, he tore a ligament in her shoulder, that is a medical fact. dominique strauss-khan ripped her stockings. there are holes, rips, in her stockings, and the d.a. knows that. when she was on her knees and he was sexually assaulting her, after he finished, she got up and started to run for that door. and started spitting dominique strauss-khan's semen out of her mouth i

he is the big front runner when it comes to the money race. he's expected to announce somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 to $20 million in the first quarter in fundraising. that's not as much as he raised back in the 2008 period, but not too shabby for mitt romney. >>> thanks. a reminder for all the latest political news go to our website cnn politics.com. >>> let's celebrate the 4th a couple days together. we'll have beer and barbecue and hit the road. >> we'll be celebrating here at cnn. >> we're patriotic to our job. >> live from studio 7, i'm suzanne malveaux. >>> the case against former imf chief dominique strauss-kahn may be falling apart. he has a quickly called court hearing. that is happening in 30 minutes. sources say prosecutors will outline significant credibility issues with strauss-kahn's accuser, a maid claims that strauss-kahn sexually assaulted her six weeks ago in his new york hotel suite. >> even with dna evidence, the prosecution is considering dropping the case. that shows how bad her credibility may be, that even with dna evidence, they may not be able to

[ female announcer ] dermatologist recommended aveeno has an oat formula, now proven to build a moisture reserve, so skin can replenish itself. that's healthy skin for life. only from aveeno. >>> a new york judge today released dominique strauss kahn from arrest saying the accuser lied about her background and facts of the case. the indictment against the former international monetary fund chief still stands, at least for now. prosecutors acknowledge they have doubts about the allegation that strauss kahn sexually attacked a maid in a luxury hotel back in may in new york. all the lawyers involved, they put their respective spin on what ha
has to go that, would have a big devastating impact on assad. there is a sense in washington that not only is assad not going to reform, but the opposition is toughening up. yes, it's not united, but is persistent as every friday. soon not far away in august comes ramadan. during ramadan in august, every day is a friday. >> i realize these sort of repeated warnings from the u.s. give heart to the protestors, send signals to our allies in the region. i wonder if there is any down side to repeated warnings that don't have an "or else" to them. >> that is an interesting question. my sense of what's been reported out of the state department, they are reluctant to get specific to say assad must go because they do not think they have the capacity to get him out of there. they don't want the united states looking like a paper tiger with regard to syria. we had enough problems trying to get gadhafi to go. right now i think the united states is in a waiting game, trying to toughen sanctions, harden up the rhetoric, seeing if others will join and recognizing these protestors are not go
